Multiplying both sides by 10 would cancel the fraction on the right hand side. That leaves your answer, as a top heavy fraction.

You should get "n", is that right? if this is the case why you don't change this equation to "n"? its simple:

10/8 = n/10 | * 10
100/8 = n
12,5 = n

And now you can check your solution:

10/8 = 12,5/10
1,25 = 1,25

as you can see that it is the right solution.
